Storm Surge strikes Thorpe Park

Guests at Thorpe Park near London have a new water ride experience for 2011. Storm Surge is 20-metre-tall rafting ride from WhiteWater that passengers can enjoy in normal clothes as they rush down a red, yellow and blue spiral channel.

The attraction formerly appeared at Cypress Gardens in Florida, with same name, but was shipped to its “sister park” in the UK as operator Merlin Entertainments transforms the venue into Legoland Florida.

Thorpe Park’s other water rides include a Mack log flume, Intamin rapids and Hopkins shoot-the-chute.
